grocery shopping (i'm still making a list. i did find a recipe for kneader's poppy seed dressing, so i feel good now)
calling the stupid insurance stuff. they are ignoring me. meanwhile i am 15 weeks pregnant and as of next week uninsured. awesome. our #1 option at this point: an unassisted childbirth. i warn you that youtubing 'unassisted childbirth' can have less than appealing results.
editing pictures. there are a few thousands. catherine's are at the top of the list since she's trying to release her ep and that's somewhat dependent on having some album art/promo shots, followed by a wedding and engagement session. my goal is to get all of them done in 3 days. we'll see how that goes.
calling about some random bills that i got that apparently weren't sent to my insurance. i was pretty annoyed when i found out all that they had drawn blood for last month. besides a normal prenatal panel, they drew 3 more vials: gonorrhea, hiv, and hepatitis. for serious? i paid for (though hopefully my insurance will have actually covered all this and i just got a premature 'bill') them to tell me i don't have an std? uh, yeah, i kinda figured that when i you know, saved myself for marriage, as did my husband? sheesh, what a waste. note to self, always find out what your blood is being drawn for. dumb on my part.
well, instead, i am filling a shopping cart at bn.com. my dad is leaving the company after like a decade and i gotta work that employee discount while i can. my picks?

ok, so unassisted is probably not my preferred way (though i may not have a choice if i'm uninsured, haha) but natural definitely is. i have my reasons and don't diss on those who had epi's and c-sections, i'm just not a huge fan of all the intervention on the part of hospitals and doctors on something that women have been doing for a gajillion years. i'd like to have the say in how my child enters this world, so we'll see how that goes.
i watched Ratatouille one night in provo last week, and loved it so much, i decided i needed to learn french cooking. that and the julie and julia movie.
i'm starving. i think i'll eat some hamburger helper without the hamburger.
until next time, peace out, and in the meantime, wear your seatbelts.
